Morgan Sindall Scoops £3m Deal

Construction News Image
Morgan Sindall Construction has scooped a £3 million deal to develop a new extension at a school in Oxford.

The contract also includes a programme of renovations and improvements, to Hanborough Manor School on Riley Close in Long Hanborough.

The main contactor was appointed to the scheme by Oxfordshire County Council through the Educating and Skills Funding (ESFA) framework, an £8 billion delivery vehicle governed by the Department of Education.

It has been commissioned following the announcement of 339 new homes planned for Long Hanborough. Currently, the total capacity for the school is 210. The project is set to expand this number to a maximum of 315 pupils aged 4-11.

Designs by architect Collado Collins outline a 5,877 square foot single-storey building, which will house five general purpose classrooms for use by both KS1 and KS2 pupils.

Alongside this, Morgan Sindall Construction will also carry out improvement works to the main building, including an extending and remodelling the kitchen. In addition, an existing classroom will be converted into library space and a one-to-one room to be used for separate individual or group study.

The brief also includes the installation of a new multi-use games area as well as a Sports England pitch for outdoor activities.

The extension's new roofing will be constructed using Structural Insulated Panels, a modern, timber-based construction material which is thermally efficient and good value for money. An airtight SIP building uses less energy to heat and cool, making it a green product which also reduces construction waste.

Construction started recently and is scheduled to complete in time for the next academic year in 2021.

James York, area director at Morgan Sindall Construction, said: "Our work to extend Hanborough Manor will help the school to meet demand for pupil places driven by Oxford’s burgeoning population. The additional space will be bright, modern and sustainable due to the carbon-conscious design and use of timber.

"We're incredibly pleased to be working with the council on another key education project and look forward to delivering it safely and efficiently over the next 12 months."
